The Illinois Times issued a clarification Monday afternoon making it clear that cartoonist Chris Britt is a freelancer and not an employee of the newspaper. Here’s how the paper’s statement appeared on Facebook:

Clarification regarding the Judge Kavanaugh cartoon by Chris Britt:
While Chris Britt is a regular contributor to Illinois Times, he is not an employee and also engages in work for other publications across the country. The recent cartoon involving Kavanaugh’s daughter was posted on Chris’ own Facebook page; it did not appear in our publication or on our website The Illinois Times name should not have appeared on the cartoon in question and we have asked Chris Britt to remove it.

What was that? A cartoon involving Brett Kavanaugh’s 10-year-old daughter? The one who said, “We should pray for the lady”?

We can’t imagine how anyone could find this offensive.

That’s … so low. Low enough that Sen. Dianne Feinstein probably had it tacked up on her office wall.

Yeah, he’s not a nice guy anymore. He probably thinks he is. He’s not. Even the Seattle Times, which Michelle Malkin mentioned, wants to clarify he doesn’t work there either.
